Home town boy Christiaan Basson was the leader in the clubhouse in the Alfred Dunhill Championship, as play was suspended, with a completed bogey free first round of -8 under par 64, giving him a three shot lead. He and the other leaders took full advantage of his early tee time, and Christiaan said he had played very well;

“I played very well today, I was pleasantly surprised. I was coming into this week with good form but you can’t expect that good a round first off.

“Hopefully I can keep playing the way I’m playing, golf is a funny game, you never know what is going to happen.”

“We’ve just found something that I was doing wrong coming into Cape Town and that’s just one swing thought that has kind of got me on track.”

“It’s not a big thing, it’s a basic thing but it’s made all the difference the last two weeks and I’m quite happy.”

Sharing second place at -5 under par are, Mark Williams from Zimbabwe, Matt Ford, England, with another South African Charl Schwartzel, who still has one hole left to complete.

Defending Champion Branden Grace, who finished third in The Race to Dubai last week carded a first round of -1 under par 71.

There are still 39 players yet to finish their opening rounds, with play set to resume at 0630 local time on Friday.
